Now uni days, they are pretty awesome. At uni you can be whoever you … Continue reading We Are Your Friends

It was a great event, the location was lovely and the Vita girls were so friendly and helpful. It was great to get some advice on how to use the different products … Continue reading Sun-kissed Skin, So Hot
On Wednesday night I went off to Edinburgh for a little blogger meet up with Lynne, Lynsey, Kirsty, Gillian, Iona, Jade and Laura. We had planned to see a show as part of the festival but that didn’t pan out so we went for dinner instead. We went to Candy Bar on George St, a place I’ve never been despite living in Edinburgh for 3years … Continue reading It Isn’t Even The Weekend
